'VB code is written one line at a time, A line of code is called a statement. (Not all languages
'recognize the end of a line as the end of a statement).
'There are two variations on the rule of one line per statement:
'1. The underline character can be used to allow a long line of code to span multiple physical lines (simply a visual aide)
"the boys are about"
"where we want them"
'2. A colon can be used to put two or more statements on a single line
'VB allows the placement of comments in a line - comments are descriptive text which
'will be ignored during execution of the program. Comments are usually shown in
'the IDE as green-colored text. There are two ways to comment code:
'1. start the line with 'REM'
Rem this is a comment line
'2. all code to the right of an apostrophe is treated as a comment
'comments go here
